I have troubles getting white choclate ganache to set, apparently it only works with certain brands of chocolate in the uk, can anyone tell me if they have experience of certain brands setting in ganache?
I currently use Schokinag/Dezaan.
What is your ratio of cream to chocolate that you are using? I've read that the different chocolates (white, dark, milk) use a different ratio.
It won't let me edit my post, but here is the thread on here I found about the ratios: http://www.cakecentral.com/forum/t/729560/ganache-ratios
Yes I heard that too, for white chocolate 2 parts chocolate to 1 part cream.
For dark chocolate I use equal quantities.
Ive heard people in the US say the brand makes a difference and people recommend a certain brand, but it's not a brand available in the UK, hence I wondered if anyone knew of a UK brand that works?
I use Tesco value white chocolate with a 3-1 ratio (not 2-1) and it works fine. The 2-1 ratio is for dark chocolate, not white. I've also used Lidl's basic white chocolate which is less yellow than the Tesco.
A 1-1 ratio is for poured ganache, like for dribbles over the top of a cake.
